quote: It has nothing to do with faith.
quote: No, not agreed. The models are a lousy fit and the most devoted adherents to the Climate Change Religion are currently scratching their heads, wondering why the climate refuses to follow the models.
quote: Trust me, many followers treat it as a religion, and as such there is a strong "faith" aspect that defies introspection and challenge. Yes, there are Skeptics who are bible-thumping buffoons, but they are on the fringes. So try to keep an open mind. That's probably the most important attribute a scientist can have.
quote: The truth is you have no scientific evidence to show that climate change isn't happening other than your feelings.
quote: They have fit the historical data extremely well, but they are unable to tell us anything about the future.
quote: Give me enough parameters to play with and I can fit any historical data of anything extremely well, but that doesn't mean I know a lick about what it all means.
quote: So, then, what does their failure tell us about the usefulness of their models? And how can we implement policies based on these models in light of these failures? It seems it requires an awful lot of faith.
quote: Faith and science are mutual enemies.
quote: They tell us the future will be warmer. That prediction has held true since it was first made decades ago. A flat temperature for a decade doth not a cooler planet make.
quote: Doesn't even make sense. The data is based on physical measurements. They don't mutate. Any scientist can grab the raw data which is why manipulation, if it ever were to occur, would require every scientist on the planet to be part of the conspiracy.
quote: Which failure? What model? Whose policies?
quote: The new IPCC projections have been reduced from the last report commissioned. Rationally, that means the last batch of models used in climate science were wrong. This also implies the new set are also wrong. Of course they’re wrong. Find a scientist telling you they are right and please, by all means, shoot the liar. Gravity is also wrong.
quote: We work with what we have. The alternative is waiting a few thousand years for a fully complete understanding. Of course, your descendants might all have evolved gills by then if the worst came to pass ;).
quote: Geez, where on earth do you get your information from, Alex Jones? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Satellite_Temper... Yeah, look at that gross manipulation of data from urban stations.
quote: All the science you hold dear did not predict temperature flat lining for a decade.
quote: This "flatlining" myth is nothing but cherry picking, usually including the 1998 anomalous peak in the trendline.
quote: Ignore the fact that the earth heats and cools all the time, that we have had multiple ice ages and corresponding thawings.
quote: That is the problem, alarmists on both sides trying to justify a paycheck, and provide the results their political masters want. Instead of doing it for pure science.
quote: Those don't even have 1/10th the rate of temperature change we see in the satellite record.
quote: As far as I can see, you don't even know the basics of AGW.
quote: they throw a fit and use words like alarmism as their reason for why climate change doesn't exist. The truth is you have no scientific evidence to show that climate change isn't happening other than your feelings. Climate change is real, it has already been proven by science.
